Biography:

My work is based on the search of chemotherapy to control the visceral leishmaniasis condition that will ultimately serve the people from Indian endemic zone and all other countries. I am using reprofiling approach to find the best possible role of existing antimalarial and antibacterial drug in antileishmanial therapy. Apart from this, I am using immune-informatics approaches to design subunit vaccine against bacterial, and protozoan diseases. I am also trying to develop the subunit vaccine based on mosquito vector salivary proteins.
